No lead or customer wants to be left waiting for a reply when you’re out-of-office. That’s why Skipio now includes an away mode!

Skipio’s Away Mode

Enable away mode to send an automatic text message reply to any texts you receive while you‘re out-of-office or if it’s outside of business hours.

Away mode text replies allow you to let people know that you’re not available and when you’ll respond next. This lets you set and manage customer expectations so people aren’t left wondering when you’ll respond. 

Customize your away mode automated message each time to provide the most valuable information to people contacting you.  

Use Cases for Away Mode

Here’s a few situations to use the text message auto-reply:

  • After hours or on weekends when your business is closed
  • Holidays and special occasions
  • Unexpected closures with short-term notice
  • Anytime you want to automatically reply to incoming messages that you won’t be seeing or reply to their message until a specific date/time
